Custom shoes can only be created in the colors, patterns, styles, and fabrics that are currently listed on the Custom shoe section of our website. Colorways, fabrics and design options are continuously updated.
Our shoes are sized according to the US standard, as measured on a Brannock device (that cold metal thing that you used to stick your foot in when you were growing up). There is a good chance that you know your shoe size. If you do not, we suggest that you have your foot measured at one of our VANS Retail Stores nearest to you.
Please note, by design, our high performance skate shoes tend to fit snug so you may want to select a half size larger. show less
The size conversion from women's to men's shoes is 1.5 sizes down. For example, if you were a size 8 in women's, you'd be a size 6.5 in men's. If you fall below 6.5, you would fit into the "Boys" category. Remember, our boys' sizes start from 3.5 to 6 and our men's sizes are from 6.5 to 13 (14, 15, and 16 in some styles). show less

• At least eight (8) characters
